      At one o'clock Sunday afternoon Mr. John RHODES died of tuberculosis at his
      home near Huntington, WV
      He moved to Cabell County about 18 months ago.
      He was a son of Benjamin RHODES, deceased.
      (Mountaineer, 15 Nov 1912)

      At midnight that night, Mrs. Ollie (RHODES)
      KERWOOD, wife of Mr. J. R. KERWOOD, and a cousin of Mr. RHODES,
      passed away, a victim of the same disease. Mr. RHODES was a former resident of
      this county and was an industrious and prosperous farmer. Since that time his health has gradually failed.

      . Mrs. KERWOOD lingered for
      several months. Her demise was perhaps hastened by close confinement in






      nursing her son, Clyde KERWOOD, who was also a victim of the white plague.
      Mrs. Ollie KERWOOD, daughter of of Mr. and Mrs. D. D. RHODES, was born
      near Ripley, January 27, 1863. She was married in 1887 to J. R. KERWOOD. To
      them was born a son, Clyde, who departed this life January 31, 1912.

      The remains of Mr. RHODES accompanied by the widow, daughter, Miss Blanche
      RHODES, and brother-in-law, James PARSONS, were taken to Oak Hill Church
      Tuesday, where a double funeral service was conducted by Rev. RYMER and






      Rev. MARTIN. Mr. RHODES was 63 years of age. Mrs. KERWOOD was 49. She
      is survived by her husband and several brothers and sisters. The funeral was
      attended by a large crowd.
